City striker doesn't want to get carried away with free-scoring form after double in friendly win over Bristol Rovers

Sky Blues striker Cody McDonald says he will not be getting carried away with his current free-scoring form.

The City hitman netted a brace in the club's 2-1 final pre-season friendly win over Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Ground on Saturday, taking his pre-season tally to four in three games after another double in City's 4-1 friendly win over Accrington Stanley last weekend.

McDonald shone for Andy Thorn's side in the win over the Gas but, speaking to Sky Blues Player, he said he would not be getting carried away with his goals and that fitness and team momentum are the most important things to him at the minute.

"It's always nice to score but I won't be getting too carried away. The season kicks off proper on Tuesday and at the minute the important thing is making sure we are still getting those minutes under our belts and we keep the recent good run of form going and carry that into next week."

The 26-year-old, who arrived at the club last summer from Norwich City, did though say that he was feeling the benefits of getting a full pre-season under his belt after not having the same luxury last season.

"I do feel alot fitter and sharper than I have done in a long time and that's all down to pre-season. It's been a long one and it's been hard work but it will stand us in good stead. I didn't get a full pre-season in before the start of last season and I've said before that I was really looking forward to doing that this season so now I'm looking forward to Dagenham on Tuesday and hopefully we can come away with a result."
